Murphy’s Irish Stout
, far surpassed in taste
by its competitor about half a mile down the road, Beamish
. But enough of my thoughts...
Murphy's is available in several different flavours:
- Red - dark strong ale, with a good solid body. Sadly difficult to obtain.
- Amber – humorously, this traditional Irish Ale is only available in the US. Go figure, as those American types are wont to say.
- Millenium Brew – tragically brewed only during 1999. Basically Murphy’s with a shot of whiskey tossed in during the brewing process. Absolutely gorgeous.
Murphy’s are also the brewers and distributors of several well-known international beers in Ireland ; Heineken
In Ireland, Murphy’s have achieved a level of product placement in Ireland rivalled only by Coca-Cola and Jesus. They sponsor practically everything involving alcohol on any level – including the Cat Laughs comedy festival, the Green Energy music festival and the Irish Open golf tournament.
